We find ourselves in a time of great upheaval and disruption, where truth, justice, and the very biosphere we rely on seem to be unraveling. You know that for change to happen, it will take community. Yet community can seem so fragile, fickle, or flaky. Even when we are just a swipe, click, or message away, building and maintaining real community seems out of reach or increasingly difficult to sustain.

We need each other more than ever, need to work together on an unprecedented scale and in a way that doesn’t sustain oppressive patterns woven into existing, failing systems.

Social permaculture offers a new way of thinking about community. Permaculture is a set of design principles centered on whole systems that pattern those in nature. And social permaculture applies these resilient natural patterns to our social systems, starting with you.
